The color blue is another clear example of the theme of deceptive appearances. The color blue represents depression, unhappiness, and loneliness. Gatsby’s first piece of wealth is a blue coat given to him by Dan Cody, signifying the beginning of his life as a rich person. In addition, Gatsby's blue lawn, and blue garden, where he hosts his extravagant parties reveals his sadness and loneliness everytime Daisy does not show.

Because of this, everyone speculates on the real identity of Gatsby. Gatsby has worked hard his entire
Nearly two years after they meet, Joel goes to the library where Clementine works, and he is struck that she doesn’t appear to remember who he is, and she is now dating another guy.

As the film ‘Run Lola Run’ has a multiform narrative structure, it is separated into three sections in which Lola is able to repeat her journey from the beginning. The repetition of the run in which we see the same scene three times is an example of how Lola's journey is similar to the likes of a video game. This works to emphasise the fact that her life can just be rewinded and restarted just like video games. Even though, in real life we cannot travel back it time, the repetition of the run sequence shows mistakes are fixed by going back to the root of the problem. Throughout the movie, the background music is similar to the music that is heard in fast-paced, action based video games, the music is fast paced and creates suspense, which
When Clementine dyed her hair orange Joel gave her the nickname “Tangerine” which shows intimate emotions, but as the viewer, we see the downfall of the relationship. While Joel is in the process of erasing his memories, the audience can recognize that they are no longer living spontaneously and at the moment but settling down. Clementine brings up serious topics, as a couple should discuss, like having a kid. Yet, Joel persists on “[talking] about it later.” He starts commenting about minute details and things he doesn't like about Clementine, for instance, her drinking. The devaluation relationship comes from a "girl who's looking for [her] own peace of mind", what Joel cannot offer. “Red menace” is a fierce and passionate color. The red represents the brief but joyous and exciting parts of being with Joel. There is a lack of red throughout the movie, but all relationships aren't built upon the happiest moments of a relationship but the memorable and meaningful ones. Lastly, Clementine's hair is green. This signifies a fresh start, a time for growth and balance for

Colour is a symbolic material in various sections of the film, as it functions as connecting visual and thematic threads which allude to connotations of danger, love, passion shaping her as a dynamic, charismatic character. Lola's fiery red hair highlights her speed, as she nearly runs through the entire movie. There are scenes where Lola and Manni are together and are seemingly illuminating red light, which exhibits their love and passion. The colour red is symbolically used in the film to emphasize certain aspects of Lola's life that are maintained in the use of props. In the beginning, the call to Lola is answered on a red phone, which highlights the urgency of Manni’s call and sets the precedence for the symbolic use of red throughout the movie. The recurring motif of the red ambulance at the end of each run represents urgency and tension. The red accents the rushed plotline, the love between Lola and Manni, and the blood of them both.
The color red is often associated with desire and passion, but can also represent disaster and warnings as well. Mattie’s red scarf signifies desire between her and Ethan because they meet up frequently together and know they can’t ever end up together. Zeena’s favorite pickle dish symbolizes passion between her and Ethan because it was a gift to them on their wedding day. In the beginning of Ethan Frome, the narrator introduces the main character; describing him as having a good soul but having a maimed body. The red scar on Ethan’s forehead serves as a representation for all of the desire and disastrous thoughts and situations that he is invariably coping with. The scar can be
Colours signify shift in moods, feelings and beliefs. White denotes purity, humility and marriage. Blue conveys trust, tranquillity and harmony. Red represents all things intense and passionate. It is no surprise then as to why Hughes titled one of his works after this symbolism.
In this novel, foreshadowing is a crucial literary element that Lois Lowry uses to give the reader hints about what is going to happen later on in the book. Foreshadowing gives the reader an idea of the main character's personality, introduces the conflicts that are yet to happen, and discreetly proposes the main theme: the importance of being an individual. Lois Lowry even chose to begin her book with foreshadowing by saying, "It was almost December, and Jonas was beginning to feel frightened." (Lowry 6). For example, at the beginning of the book, Lowry introduces the one thing that makes Jonas physically different than the rest of the population in the community: his eyes. Jonas has pale looking eyes, just like the Giver. This is a way of telling the reader that he is special, and will have significant role in changing the community. Another example of this element in the book is the “seeing beyond” that Jonas starts to experience. This example foreshadows the internal changes that are going occur to Jonas later on in the story. “The apple had changed. Just for an instant. It had changed…” (Lowry, 51). Through these examples, foreshadowing easily gives the reader a better understanding of how important it is to have a unique personality.
Red and blue are two colors that carry a lot of symbolic meaning. For example, red is a color associated with passion, love, fire, danger, anger, and adventure. Whereas blue is associated with water, depth, stability, trust, loyalty, wisdom, confidence, intelligence, faith, truth, and heaven. Her decision of separating the two colors by dividing her body into two parts perhaps reveals that there are two sides to Charline, each half contradicts the other. One side of her is warm compassionate and loving, whilst the other is cold, eager and determined. However, the middle ground is when both colors are intertwined, creating a beautiful purple balance. This is the point of intersection, where both her personalities merge into one, creating
In Michael Gondry’s Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004), the connections between people and memories become the focal point of a very unique romance. Through the use of new technology, the possibility of erasing memories makes painful relationships disappear like they never happened. The tale of Joel and Clementine allows the audience to rethink and question the process they undergo as beneficial or destructive. Though the process might be helpful in eliminating the pain caused from another person, four key scenes show how the lessons learned through relationship experiences are important.
